SICKAGO: Mixtapes 94 – ’96

Börft enigma Crinan lays down 3 hours of screwed & deadly warehouse mixes recorded straight to tape between 1994 – 1996 and now issued for the first time, arcing from House and Acid to Techno and back, mixed fast and loose to fully impact bodies in motion.

Split into 4 parts over 3 hours, Crinan characterises the sort of dancing gear that got Sweden’s underground scene moving in the mid ‘90s, during the formative stages of a label that would eventually find its own cult status in the years that followed. It’s a strong point of reference for Joachim Nordwall too, who has long been affiliated with the Börft label which issued Crinan’s pair of highly collectable Chi-skooled 12”s in 1998, and also exactly the sort of gear that was fuelling ‘floors from Manchester and Berlin back in the day.

On side A we hear him whip it tough and freaky with Dance Mania percolators and butterfly dancers, before side B loosens up and gets wilder with psychedelic acid and latinate, carnivalesque bangers. Side C sounds like exactly the sort of steely wallbuck tackle and rolling techno that would fuel the Brum lot (Regis & Surgeon et al) whilst side D chains up a fruitier carousel of peak time synths and strings built to drive his fellow Swedes to a frenzy.

Exceptional, screwed party steez from start to finish. -Boomkat
